HTC used to have their own design language before this. They used to make high quality phones which have stellar build quality. Losses made HTC to just take few things from the competition. The camera placement and back design, home key is clearly from Samsung. They are trying to get back into game and this shouldn't be the way to do it after being successful with their own designs for a while.
I want this phone badly. But i can't afford to pay for it or even for the u play :(:(
[deleted post]It is called 'signature design' dear. Every brand have their own signature design. It tarnished a manufacturer image if they copied other phone signature design that is well known for the other brand. We deemed this copycat as incompetent to innovate their own design. Like you said, HTC is ancestor of android but they are unable to be original in term of design though. I could forgive them if they just stay with the boring old HTC design but this radical changes is a total no. Its too much. It just lost its entire identity as a HTC phone. It just doesnt scream HTC to my face when I look at it.
Disappointed because they take nearly 80% of the design from Samsung...the home button, square protude camera, the flash...HTC have made superb design in the past surpassing all of it competitors...its to bad people dont appreciate HTC anymore...are they design it like this to gain popularity like samsung did...this phone is a tad ugly and also the price...totally not worth it even if they have something up they sleeves...people wont buy that...
So if you made a phone with a keyboard, your copying blackberry, if you have 2.5D glass on the front your copying iPhone and if you have glass on the back, your copying Samsung. . Oh if you have a second display your like LG.
Well all android phones have copied HTC because they were the first android and all have copied them because they were the first 4G phone.
This is a really good handset but I believe htc have something else up their sleeves after the S8 launches.
Watch this space!!!
Momo Simon, 12 Mar 2017Too Samsung-ish, and a little bit V20. Bad design.Yep,that camera bump with the flash positioning.IF i would see it's back i would think it is an s6.But they kept the front fingerprint sensor,which is a + for me and others.
